Collaboration between MEP engineers, structural engineers or architects is the main key to model precise buildings. One of the cases when collaboration between MEP engineers and structural engineers or architects greatly contributes to model’s quality is during insertion of openings into structures for MEP elements.

Usually MEP engineers work using linked file technology. They are linking structures to their own file and using it to check whether there are interferences. But how can someone specify the openings that are found in MEP engineer’s workplace for structural engineer. Structural engineers are given a huge amount of tasks to open passages for MEP services. Basically only MEP engineers know what sizes of openings should be used according to some special standard, fire ratings, etc.

AGACAD released a new technology for easier communication between MEP and structural engineers: "Cut Opening Software Opens New Possibilities for Collaboration between Revit® Users". Now structural engineers can take a breath and concentrate on their own tasks only. On this occasion, we are hosting a 30-min WEBINAR, which will b held by two Revit specialists that specialize in MEP engineering and structural engineering.

TOOLS4BIM Dock Gets Revit® 2017 Support and New Free Revit App

AGACAD is pleased to announce that all AGACAD applications for Autodesk® Revit® included in our tool management system TOOLS4BIM Dock* have already been updated for Revit 2017. From now on, AGACAD TOOLS4BIM products are compatible with all versions of Revit 2017 (excluding Revit LT) as well as the previous Revit 2016 & 2015**.

The main novelty of the TOOLS4BIM Dock 2017 version – it contains new Revit add-in named Smart Select that allows Revit users to select desired architectural, structural or MEP elements automatically by user configured parameters in just a few clicks.

It seems that this year will be the first, when everything is going according to plan. Autodesk company is about to release Autodesk® Revit® 2017 on April 17th 2017, while AGACAD plans to release its newest TOOLS4BIM products’ versions... on April 17th as well!

We are still working on our products’ 2017 versions but they are nearly ready. 2017 version testing is in full swing and is nearly completed. Most of AGACAD TOOLS4BIM products are already tested and work perfectly in Revit 2017 version environment. Our technical team needs to check just a few more BIM solutions, and if bugs don’t rush us over, the newest versions’ preparations will be complete. And voila! – You can use the new Revit version together with productivity-enhancing applications designed for Revit.

We announce that from now on all AGACAD TOOLS4BIM products support compatibility with both Autodesk® Revit® 2016 as well as the previous Revit 2015.

The main novelty of the 2016 version edition – it contains the installer that is a very convenient new platform for tool installation, activation and management named TOOLS4BIM Dock. All AGACAD TOOLS4BIM trials and purchased licenses are acceptable through this platform now. All functionality of our tools will be the same as before except the interface will be different.

Projects can usually last for a long time and in the end of the projects you can feel your productivity decline. Even MEP engineers get the project when the deadline is NOW. It is normal and usual problem for big projects. The projects become boring and it seems that everything is done but still you have to do documentation things. We have solutions to increase productivity in this case. We automated some documentation tasks that can increase your work productivity. So these tools can make you happy.

AGACAD has different productivity-boosting products but the most memorable and easy to use is little documentation tools. I will shortly introduce them from MEP Engineer’s perspective:

Numbering elements, importing external data, making legend, adding dimensions, making & managing sheets and other element modeling and documentation tasks are main daily work headaches for each Autodesk® Revit® user. Do you know how to boost Revit model performance and simplify project documentation?

On the second week of June we are hosting webinars on all our inexpensive but very effective Revit apps’ overview for Architects, HVAC Engineers and Structural Engineers.

We kindly welcome you to join the corresponding session and see what productivity tools for Revit every Architect / Structural Engineer / MEP Engineer needs to have for performance of daily tasks. We’ll provide a short overview of productivity tools for Revit for each building designer’s workstation.

In these webinars for building designers you’ll see a short overview on our simple but highly efficient tools that increase design productivity when modeling buildings and preparing documentation. Below you can find a description of each webinar and registration links.

AGA CAD is a software developer that is looking for the fastest and the most convenient way to work in Autodesk® Revit®. AGA CAD software is specialized in various fields like: architecture, structure, MEP, analysis, etc. This time I want to tell about MEP part of Revit.

AGA CAD is creating professional BIM solutions for MEP engineers that work with Autodesk Revit. I can count over 10 products that can help MEP engineers in their everyday workflow. Our main goal is to find the weakest points in Revit and develop the solution that will increase work productivity in such cases. Some of these solutions can increase work productivity but some of them can open new features that even Revit does not have.

In this article I will list some of AGA CAD's MEP created solutions:

Some time ago we gave you a few examples of how our clients' requests can become improvements of AGACAD products. Thanks for all of you who contributed by giving us advices on how to improve our products or just expressing you wishes for Revit productivity increase.

The newest case of our client's impact in AGACAD software development is related to our BIM solution Smart Assemblies. Our team released an updated version of this application for Autodesk® Revit® at the end of January. Do you know what functionality has been included? We have added Rebar Mass calculation to Smart Assemblies. Our loyal client Jason Wallis from Hanssen Pty Ltd Drafting Office who is the enthusiastic user of this solution for Revit, has sent us a request on December 3, 2014:

"I remember seeing in one of the latest updates for Smart Assemblies a new feature that calculates the mass/weight of all the elements inside the assembly. Does this also work for rebar?
In the past, I've created a 'calculated value' parameter for rebar weight for each shop drawing, which I have had to manually add to every drawing. If it's now possible to create a schedule that will report the mass/weight of the rebar automatically, I'd love to know how to do it."

Thank you.
